Ponte Vedra beach erosion

We love the beach at Ponte Vedra, but haven't been there in a few years. I heard that there has been a lot of beach erosion there. Does anyone know what the beaches are like for swimming and playing for pre-school age kids?

It's true, there has been a lot of beach erosion in certain areas. It's worst in South Ponte Vedra Beach, extending several miles from the Gate gas station at Guana River State Park towards St. Augustine. Several homes have completely lost their "backyards" and sit on the edge, ready to fall during the next Noreaster.

In Ponte Vedra Beach - from Jacksonville Beach to Guana - it isn't that bad. But I wouldn't let small kids into the water at high tide because the upper part of the beach is steep and the water becomes very deep within a few feet. It's a totally safe situation at low tide, though.

Thanks for responding... We're looking to stay at a beachfront home close to the entrance to the Guana River State Park, so it sounds like we will see some of the erosion. It helps to know what to expect.. thanks again!
